Smooch of Trimble, Kisses.

Remember Kisses? That charming, if mildly chintzy Cali pairing of Jesse Kivel and Zinzi Edmundson who set these sorts of intangible entities aglow with their début, The Heart of the Nightlife? Well, after what's felt like aeons – and indeed has been upon the blogosphere (scarily, the LP was released almost two years ago already) they're back with Funny Heartbeat. And it sounds as though they've been smooching with Two Door Cinema Club's Alex Trimble in the interim: built around the usual array of machined rhythmic syntheses and oceanspray-refreshing bursts of guitar evocative of both Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now and Peñate's once exalted Everything Is New, it perpetuates the perception that the duo only emerge from long-drawn-out hibernation over these supposedly aestival months and is available on a free below.
